Despite its literary counterparts, the title of this exhibition is taken from a Madrid band called A Room with a View (1990-2000). In the same way the group began to distance itself from the premises of hardcore music to explore less related sound modules, these featured artists use photography to rehearse other connected discourses with a language – visual – in continuous transformation.

The heavily political and theoretical tone of this year’s Biennale makes Lucas’ work seem even brasher and somehow at odds with the other, sometimes earnest and frequently socially engaged, works on display. Review by Will Gresson

Pulling across the contemporary oscillation between curator and artist, Faux Guide amalgamates a mass of objects, many of which are simulations of a history fabricated in recent years. Review by Laura Davidson

The detailed construction of a fictive domestic space within which to show three videos suggests a recently abandoned interior, one whose occupant might return at any moment. Fiona Tan's exhibition is reviewed by David Price.

There are scratches on the surface of the world. These manifested in the titular ‘Weather Station’: a semi-transparent, spherical ‘zorb’ recently anchored by ropes to a makeshift platform outside OSR Projects. Review by Rowan Lear
